From Origins Within - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
The sadness of a hatred created that escalates,
Stamps the seal of revenge...
On minds remembering misdeeds,
Coming with torment.
And the satisfactions of comforts,
Are long overdue and keep the many waiting.
No one who suffers in grief...
Completely leaves it alone!
And no hand glading back slapping politician,
Can patch these pains in painless campaigns
To gain support for change and majestic opportunities!
These are not the days,
For dispensing 'goose bumping' promises.
Dimple smiles revealing flawless white teeth are fading!
Glamorizing the glitter of life has produced
Cavities of injustices upon moral standards that decay!
Much of which is on display is rotting!
And from origins within,
Connecting to descendants of this thinking...
Is where this unraveling begins on its descend.
Stopping it would be to admit...
Something unfit began all of it!
And today there is no time left,
To explore and examine these revelations!
Not when addressing the affects,
Sinks and digresses any expectation for progress!
